I love Khichri and that is the reason that I love to try different types of Khichri. I have tasted Khichri in almost all the regions in India and loved them all. However, one Khichri always eluded me. And that is Bengali Bhog Khichri or Bhoger Khichuri, as they call it. Luckily, a couple of weeks ago, I did have Bhoger Khichuri and that too an authentic one.
So, it was a variety of Poha and Jalebi, Sindhi Dal Pakwaan, Gujarati Fafda and Kadhi besides others in breakfast. A lunch of Rajasthani Thali or an ala carte order of Lehsuni Palak and Khichri. And then some Hot Dog, Khopra Pattice and Batla Kachori during evening stroll. All this followed by some Coconut Crush, Garadu, Bhutte Ki Khees, Fruit Shots and what not, including a flying Dahi Bada in Sarafa. Is this mind boggling ? Well, all this was over about 36 hours in Indore.
This piping hot Murg Yakhni Pulao came in an Earthen Pot. Long grained Basmati Rice were heaped over the brim as if eager to hop on to your plate. Two-three serving spoons on your plate gave you an aroma of Basmati engulfed in ghee. Each grain was separate yet intact with each other.
